Easterbrook Predictions

In 2001 Don Easterbrook (geologist at Western Washington University) made predictions as to the future global (and northern hemisphere) temperatures to the year 2100. (His web page is http://www.ac.wwu.edu/~dbunny/index.htm)

In 2001, I put my reputation on the line and published my predictions for entering a global cooling cycle about 2007 (plus or minus 3-5 years), based on past glacial, ice core, and other data. As right now, my prediction seems to be right on target and what we would expect from the past climatic record, but the IPCC prediction is getting farther and farther off the mark. With the apparent solar cooling cycle upon us, we have a ready explanation for global warming and cooling. If the present cooling trend continues, the IPCC reports will have been the biggest farce in the history of science. [http://www.ac.wwu.edu/~dbunny/research/global/glocool_summary.pdf]
